Sour Patch Kids Freeze – Review
First, there was fire, then there was freeze? Sour Patch Kids revealed their two newest flavors together.
They even did the promotion of them all together. I couldn’t go on Instagram without seeing both of them side by side.
Which made the fact that I couldn’t track down the Freeze ones anywhere just that much more frustrating.
Luckily, my local liquor store randomly came through. I got their final pack.
Enough complaining. How Were They?
I tried and reviewed the Fire version, and enjoyed them.
I’m not usually a fan of spicy candy, but because it was so subtle it ended up agreeing with my taste buds.
But in reality, I was just excited to try the Freeze versions.
I had heard they were all LEMONADE flavors, which just happens to be my favorite kind of flavors (see Lemonade Mike and Ikes)
And when I first opened the pack, I was even more excited.
These Sour Patch Kids look fantastic.
The color of them is almost neon. It’s bright, it’s vibrant, and it looks delicious
*CUE THE LETDOWN*
At first bite, it’s all very good tasting. Sour and sweet. The classic Sour Patch flavors really come through.
Then, the freeze hits…
Sour Patch Kids Freeze flavors…
It’s a little jarring at first. The menthol taste is not something you’re used to in a candy.
As I continued to power through them, I did find them mildly addicting. I guess that’s why some people smoke this way too.
And when I tried the pink flavor, I could see myself buying these again.
The flavors are as follows:
- Pink – Strawberry Lemonade
- Blue – Blue Raspberry Lemonade
- Green – Cherry Lime Lemonade
- Yellow – Lemonade
The Strawberry Lemonade flavor is the clear standout, but regular Lemonade is also great.
Cherry Lemonade leaves a lot to be desired, and blue raspberry lemonade is a straight up letdown.
Maybe that’s why you don’t see blue raspberry lemonade around all that often?
Overall, these did grow on me. That being said, I find it hard to believe Sour Patch will find a big market for these.
My guess is that it will become a novelty candy that doesn’t connect with a large enough fanbase to stick around.
Regardless, for me, it’s an OM. It’s crazy and fun, but not something I would eat instead of normal Sour Patch Kids.
Or even the tropical flavors for that matter…
